TBILISI, November 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Georgy Margvelashvili’s inauguration as President of the Georgian Republic has ushered in a new epoch, Acting Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said Sunday.
“Georgia has gotten a truly democratic president and it’ll have a truly democratic government,” Ivanishvili said.
Ivanishvili and his political associates leveled sharp criticism at former President Mikhail Saakashvili, calling him a butcher of the Georgian people and accusing him of obtruding a regime of violence and lies upon the nation long before the October 1, 2012, parliamentary election, which brought victory to the Georgian Dream coalition.
Saakashvili turned down all the accusation and said repeatedly that Georgia had scored significant successes in the field of reforms during his presidency “in spite of some errors.”
The Georgian Dream coalition that won the 2012 election set up a cabinet with Ivanishvili at the head. Still, Saakashvili’s continued term of office created a de facto duality of power and, according to many politicians, did not allow the coalition to carry out reforms in the country.
